FutureWater organized a workshop on “The Role of Earth Observation in Water Resource Management: Strengts of the Dutch water sector” at the Rotterdam Airport hotel on 20 May 2009 together with WaterWatch, TU Delft and NIVR. The workshop was organized in the framework of the ESAWAT project.
In this informal workshop a select group of around 40 experts from the Netherlands will discuss the different aspects of this emerging field with a specific focus on the strengths of the Dutch water sector. The program can be downloaded here.
